Residents have moved into six new bungalows in Twydall, in Gillingham, as part of a £1m housing development.
Medway Council built the one-bedroom properties in Petham Green for older residents and people with mobility problems.
The new homes have rear level access, large wet rooms and automatic bathroom window openers. There is also the opportunity for a hoist to be fitted between the bedroom and wet room.
The bungalows have been positioned to create a square, with a green space in the middle of the properties. Residents moved into the bungalows from council properties, which will now be offered to other families.
Councillor Howard Doe, the council’s deputy leader and portfolio holder for housing and community services, said: “The Petham Green development showcases our commitment to continuing to provide affordable housing for the people of Medway.
“I am pleased that we have built homes specifically for older residents and people with mobility needs as the bungalows will have a positive impact on the lives of the residents moving into them.”
